  12. Katrine Lukins – You Are The Reason (380 votes)

Total votes cast = 14745

Due to the large amount of traffic  to the LTV website there was a period of unavailability and as such the online votes made during this round were deemed invalid and not counted in the final score.

Round 1 combined score (Jury +Televote):

  1. Dons – Pēdējā vēstule (2 + 1 = 3)
  2. Aarzemnieki – Cake To Bake (4 + 2 = 6)
  3. Samanta Tīna – Stay (5 + 4 = 9)
  4. Ralfs Eilands & Valters Pūce – Revelation (1 + 8 = 9)
  5. Aminata Savadogo – I Can Breathe (3 + 7 = 10)
  6. Olga un Līgo – Saule Riet (9 + 3 = 12)
  7. Katrīna Bindere – Moment and Tomorrow (7 + 5 = 12)
  8. MyRadiantU – Going All The Way (6 + 9 = 15)
  9. Niko – Here I Am Again (11 + 6 = 17)
  10. Eirošmits – If I Could (Get Away) (8 + 11 = 19)
  11. Markus Riva – Lights On (10 + 10 = 20)
  12. Katrine Lukins – You Are The Reason (12 + 12 = 24)

In the cases of a tie, the televote was deemed the tiebreaker. This meant that Dons, Aarzemnieki and Samanta Tīna qualified for the superfinal.

Jury vote for superfinal:

  1. Dons – Pēdējā vēstule
  2. Aarzemnieki – Cake To Bake
  3. Samanta Tīna – Stay

Televote + Internet vote for superfinal:

  1. Aarzemnieki – Cake to Bake (3949 + 1529 = 5478)
  2. Dons – Pēdējā vēstule (3830 + 1551 = 5381)
  3. Samanta Tīna – Stay (1979 + 797 = 2776)

Total votes cast = 13675

Superfinal combined score (Jury + Public vote):

  1. Aarzemnieki – Cake to Bake (2 + 1 = 3)
  2. Dons – Pēdējā vēstule (1 + 2 = 3)
  3. Samanta Tīna – Stay (3 + 3 = 6)

Again, the televote was given more weighting to decide any tie breaks.

As you can see from this, Aarzemnieki won by the slimmest of margins only ever being the most favoured in the phone voting in the final round. It was that round however that counted most awarding them victory by an overall margin of 97 votes out of 13675 votes cast in the final round.

It is currently unknown exactly how many votes came from within Latvia and by which of the three social media platforms they were cast on, nor do we have full data for the semi finals. We expect that information in the coming week.
